From the moment you enter, you see and feel the vibrance of the Uncompahgre River and the majesty of the 14 thousand foot peaks of the San Juan Mountains. The house has an open floor plan allowing for great entertaining, with lots of natural light. Our home was completely remodeled two years ago. Attention to detail is apparent: the aspen tongue and groove ceiling, luxurious carpet, tile, fully equipped gourmet kitchen (including spices), travertine bathrooms with fabulous vanities and high end fixtures. There are four comfy recliners and two fireplaces. The upper, covered, wrap around Trex deck overlooks the river and is a peaceful place to relax. When you are on the lower, covered deck, off the master bedroom, you are 'at one' with the river. The grassy areas have multiple creeks that flow to the river. Paradise!

Why the Owner Chose Ridgway: Our property was passed down from one generation to the next. We think it is the most special property in Ouray County and have been told that by many friends, family and visitors.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Being ON THE RIVER with MOUNTAIN VIEWS, makes for a dramatic setting. And what a feeling to fish from your backyard!
Our house sets up perfectly for two couples; ample private space and together space.
